You right the 990R is an incredible bike but I think KTM is going to launch a new one to the end of this year. Perhaps in two years when it finishes the guarantee of my ST and the new KTM showed its skills….
From now I’m enjoying a lot the Yam… better than I expected

That's why they don't make a black M&M, too slow to digest.

Try a Duck beak

[QUOTE=jaumev;18178532]Its a brico using this part from Touratech



and adding a piece from a grill from a kitchen ventilator…. My wife is not very happy…
I find “unfinished” this part of the bike, I don’t like the look of the horn, brake pipes… But I’m not sure about this thing, do you like it?

[/Quote

Hola Jaumev ... try a Duck beak (Pico de pato) á la BMW like this one ...



or this one adapted for the OEM crashbars ...



Saludos,
Thagua

Hola Thagua
I like the Yamaha design without the duck beak. It seem as all the “adventure” bikes must have a beak, but I think this part could be better finished that it is in the ST.
But I like your’s
Hasta luego!

Give your idea of a better 'beak' and I will try to do it ... I think the purpose of the beak is to make your front end go down when on speed (over 150 km/hr) making the bike more stable ... also hides all the ugly wires, hoses and horn.

Thagua, I like the look of the beak, it fills the void under the headlight. Keep up the good work!

Regards, Paul
